, thomas, it's not smelling blood in the water. what it is is looking at reality. and the reality is that we have growing wealth and income inequality in america. people on top in large corporations doing phenomenally well. middle class disappearing. poverty levels at an all-time high. what we know is one out of four major american corporations don't pay a nickel in federal taxes. we're losing about $100 billion every single year by corporations and wealthy people stashing their money in tax havens in the cayman islands, bermuda and elsewhere. corporations today are paying about 12% of their profits in taxes. that's the lowest rate since 1972. so the question that we have to debate as a nation is, deficit reduction is a very important point. but we have to understand that today at 15.7% our revenue as part of gdp is the lowest that it has been in 60 years. so when senator mcconnell says revenue is not the issue, he is dead wrong. revenue is very much the issue. the american people have been very clear. they do not want to cut social security. >> right. >> medicare and medicaid. th
